Our Mission

The Wolf Trap Animal Rescue is an established not-for-profit 501(c)(3) business that currently operates by remote location to facilitate operations for transport, foster, and adoption events to aid in the rescue of puppies and kittens whom are at risk of euthanasia by shelters in Mississippi and other states of the South. Since May 2015, Wolf Trap Animal Rescue has successfully adopted out over 4,600 dogs & puppies, and 700 cats & kittens, for a total of over 5,000 animals rescued from euthanasia. The rescue has an amazing network of volunteers and fosters that are dedicated to help save more lives through this rescue program.

Wolf Trap Animal Rescue’s primary mission is to support a life-saving foster, transport, and adoption program which was developed in order to rescue young animals in danger of being euthanized in Mississippi from overpopulation. The transports help relieve the shelters from overcrowding, thus allowing additional time and resources to be spent on the older, less adoptable residents of the shelter that would otherwise be euthanized.  Rescued animals are transported by volunteers of Wolf Trap Animal Rescue, where pets reside in foster homes until they find their forever home through on-site adoption events located at designated PetSmart Charities® and Unleashed by PETCO locations.
